Couldn't check Ha-Pritza Hagdola (1970) since it's an Israeli film.

There are no listings at USCO for The Pride of Jessie Hallam (1981). If there is no copyright notice printed on the film (look in the title sequences), then it's PD.

I found this listing for Go For Broke! (1951):

Type of Work: Music
Registration Number / Date: RE0000023593 / 1979-03-26
Renewal registration for: EU0000231314 / 1951-03-05
Title: Forward sweetener. From Go for broke. Music: Alberto Colombo.
Copyright Claimant: Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer, Inc. as successor in interest to Loew’s, Inc. (PWH)
Basis of Claim: New Matter: music.

Variant title: Forward sweetener
Other Title: Go for broke
Names: Colombo, Alberto
Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer, Inc.

But that's just for music. There is no renewal registration for the motion picture. Probably enough to keep it from the public domain.

Couldn't find anything at USCO for The Bushwhackers (1952). Looks like it's PD.
